In Topic: Sound teams vs. the One-man Operation

11 June 2012 - 05:53 AM

It definitely seems like people who begin as composers are much more likely to work as a one man team then those of us who came in through the FX side, probably because FX are easier to learn and understand than music. It's good to see people open to the idea of a team structure though!

As far as composition goes, I'm never "done" with a piece. There's always going to be something I wish I could tweak, or improve, or change, or whatever. Same thing goes for any FX I design. But my rule of thumb is that once I'm content, and the client is happy with it, it's time to move on. If I have time later I can maybe go back and tweak something, but once those two criteria are satisfied it's usually time to leave it alone and shift my focus to something else. Throughout the process though, I always like to check my final mixes against tracks that myself and the client have set aside as references. I do some comparisons for volume between the reference tunes and the finished track just to see if they come in close volume-wise. That usually makes the client happy with the volume, and gives me a little leg to stand on if they do come back with the inevitable "can you make it louder?".

Yeah absolutely. I've made a few contacts from my film work, but hopefully once the title I'm currently working on releases I'll be able to expand that a little more into the game side.

I've done a fair amount of voice work, never directly for games but quite often for animation. Good to know I can focus though, sometimes it seems like it's harder to find work when you have a more focused skill set.

Thanks for chiming in JB. I do really dig the concept of putting the jobs under the classified section, hopefully it works out a little better then the previous system. I did laugh a little though that the only job posted under the audio category is somebody advertising their sound services. Old habits die hard I guess :P
